"Bye," Trevone said, smiling examining the science project.
Trevone had been the complete opposite of Floyd. He talked about the old Detroit as an economic powerhouse. Believing the Big Three would make a comeback with flying electric cars, he studied the benefits and spoke as though he had designed the master plan. She didn't put the kid down nor she endorsed people flying in the sky.
"Take a seat in the car until the bus come guys." Ebony never gave up on the kids who weren't members of gangs or the ones just starting in it. She believed she could save them.Trevor looked up and was about to walk to the silver bus stop pole.Then he turned heading for the car after seeing a couple come out of one of the burnt houses.
Ebony was aware who they were. He beat her so often that neighbors stop calling the police when she screamed. Ebony rubbed her forehead, grimacing. She called the police, Ebony arrived and she sent her away expressing she could handle him. Ebony swore to protect the people in her community not to show up to be used to scare an abuser to act right.
"Don't worry, we're not catching the bus,"the woman said with purple bruising covering her check to her neck.
Kids don't want to be around a man slapping and slugging his lady, Ebony thought. She should be upset with herself not with the kids.When the couple passed, the bus popped into sight. It halted; the kids boarded. Her day had gotten better, two kids off to school without being shot. This is one small step for an officer, one giant leap for humankind.
